Joan of Arc
« on: September 19, 2015, 10:49:29 AM »
Is there any Orthodox opinion of Joan of Arc? In the West, she is one of the most famous saints and late-medieval female figures. Obviously she's 400 years too late for veneration but do you think she deserves her recognition by the RC?

It is their prerogative to recognise sanctity as they understand it.

The Gospel is quite clear: both saints and sinners love God. "Religious" people do not love him, and whenever they can, they crucify him.

Of course, OC.net is not reflective of the Church, but is rather a surreal bubble. I have visited a lot of different parishes around the world and have listened to many hours of AFR...

No need to be so professional. :(

If I wanted to be professional, I would've given you a formal warning not to discuss Roman Catholic issues in this section.  But for the sake of your first question, I didn't do that, limiting myself to commenting on your last question.

I guess like many good little Syrian boys I have a bit if a Francophile streak in me, so I'm fine with The Maid.
